When spoken word poet Harold Green III went viral on Instagram for his odes celebrating the power and beauty of Black women, he knew he had to collect his poems in a more permanent form. So Black Roses was born, his gorgeously illustrated new collection of tributes to contemporary Black women, from activists to artists to athletes. Join Harold Green in conversation with one of the “roses,” Eunique Jones-Gibson, founder of Because of Them We Can.

Black Roses: Odes Celebrating Powerful Black Women will be available for sale and signing.
